Nonviolent InfoWars Journalist Sentenced to DC Gulag
September 18, 2023
It's open season on dissidents and journalists and, most especially, dissident journalists.
Here's what didn't happen and what the government in its prosecution never even bothered to allege happened: Owen Shroyer committing violence, directly inciting violence, or entering the capitol building.
The best the state could come up with is that his chants of "1776" and that "Democrats are communists" had the effect of "amping up" the crowd of protesters – despite the explicit admonitions by the InfoWars crew on that day and throughout the years (I can see this with authority, having listened to many such broadcasts and hearing many such pleas for nonviolent resistance for more than a decade) to not commit political violence against the state or its jackbooted agents as it would be entirely counterproductive.
The nonsense charge Shroyer ultimately copped to – "illegally entering a restricted area," which includes nothing remotely related to "domestic terrorism," "running an insurrection," or anything in that vein – is what earned him the 60-day sentence.
This is textbook anarcho-tyranny; any rational person knows that the Brandon regime, as a proxy for the Deep State, would never in a million years prosecute a "mostly peaceful" BLM rioter for "illegally entering a restricted area."
The rule of law simply doesn't exist for favored political factions, sacred minorities, or immigrants; that's for the domestic terrorists.
